Walk - Nell Bridge - Clifton - Deddington - 7 Miles

  • Apr 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Some of Oxfordshire's fine countryside is to be savoured on this walk, firstly along a section of the South Oxford Canal between Nell Bridge and Wharf Farm Bridge, beautifully peaceful and rural.

Field-paths lead to Clifton, a very pretty little village, the buildings with rustic appeal. Some road-walking follows to reach the edge of Deddington, where the route takes Earls Lane before a footpath with lovely scenery and interesting land contours.

Outlying farms and cottages add their own charm and flavour and the last leg is through a golf course with superb aspects for participants.

The final few yards is along the road to reach the lay-by again, where stands Nell Bridge House and Farm with just a short distance between and the bridge and lock of the same name, a little further on.

 

RSVP's open at 6PM on Monday 15th April.

 

Start Point

We meet in the layby near Nell Bridge which is the canal bridge on the B4100 Anyho Road from Anyho to Adderbury.

We start the walk at 10AM sharp. (Please ensure you're at the start point at least 10 mins beforehand).

The area is shown better in the Map link
